Trying to outsmart a compiler defeats much of the purpose of using one.

I just looked at my book processing system and I see that the book was generated for you:
[2011-55-20 16:55:23] Processing new payment for awk_book from pkeane@[masked].
Preparing Awk Book...
Spawning Latex 2nd time...
Spawning Latex 3nd time...
Sending the Awk book to Peter Keane (pkeane@[masked]).
And that it was sent for you successfully (your mail server accepted it):
Jun 20 11:55:30 catonmat sm-mta: p5KGtThY000786: to=<pkeane@[masked]>, delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=esmtp, pri=641910, relay=inbound.mail.utexas.edu. [188.8.131.52], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (ok: Message 314653467 accepted)
It looks like your mail server didn't like that email for some reason and didn't deliver it further to you. Or if it did, can you check the spam folder? One other person who bought the book told me he found the book in his spam folder!
In any case, I just generated the book for you sent you an email with the book attached personally. Please confirm that you have received it.
And huge thanks for purchasing my book!
I just received an email from Peter, and indeed, the email (in fact both of them) were in the spam folder. Here is his response:
Yes -- there it is in my spam folder! (2 messages, in fact). Sorry
for the trouble & thanks for the book.
So for everyone who purchases the book - if you don't receive it in 10 mins, please check the spam folder, it must be there!
(why do I need your e-mail?)
It would be nice if you left your e-mail address. Sometimes I want to send a private message, or just thank for the great comment. Having your e-mail really helps.
I will never ever spam you.

I am being sponsored by Syntress since 2007! They bought me an amazing dedicated server to run catonmat on. If you're looking web services in Chicago area, I highly recommend the Syntress guys!
I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
